The 2021 Athletic Brewing IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside triathlon saw nearly 1,600 athletes start the race. Competitors ranged in age from 18-80 years old. The event led athletes along a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run throughout southern coastal California. The competition began with a beach start that saw athletes swim around and exit in Oceanside Harbor before they embarked on the single-loop bike course that ventured through the rolling hills of Camp Pendleton and San Onofre Bluffs State Park. The flat and fast two-loop run course took athletes along the scenic southern California coast before an exciting finish on The Strand. The event offered a professional prize purse of $30,000 as well as age-group qualifying slots to the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship held in St. George, Utah.
